I think those "MHA" guys and I came to a grudging respect. I lost 30K tech but peeled more than that off them.
I would have chosen my language a little more carefully if I realized my PMs were going to be posted to the OWF without my consent, which I am not happy about. I was contacted by CLAWS and GATO and they politely and firmly requested that I cease tech deals with COBRA for the duration of the war. They did not explicitly threaten me, but the implicit message was clear that there could be adverse consequences if I had continued my tech deals. Or maybe I'm just an old paranoid FAN.
